“And when you say: ‘Give me also a share in these gifts which you have found so helpful,’ I reply that I am anxious to heap all these privileges upon you, and that I am glad to learn in order that I may teach. Nothing will ever please me, no matter how excellent or beneficial, if I must retain the knowledge of it to myself. And if wisdom were given me under the express condition that it must be kept hidden and not uttered, I should refuse it. No good thing is pleasant to possess, without friends to share it.” - Seneca, Letters from a Stoic 6.4
Over the more than 20 years I have been a musician, one of the most important and fulfilling parts of my journey has been to share what I have learned with other musicians.
Guitarists, vocalists, and song-writers—experienced and aspiring—are welcome to book a one-on-one lesson with me over Zoom where we can work on:
Building a strong musical foundation
Finding your musical voice
Building strong practice habits
Developing a lifelong relationship with music
Managing your time
Building a practice routine that works for you
Using Ableton Live for production and live looping
These sessions will combine elements of traditional lessons (technique, theory, ear training, learning songs, songwriting and production basics, etc.) and coaching—emphasizing what I call "building a musical life." I teach using the best I’ve learned through my experience as a musician, singer-songwriter, and educator, while including tools and strategies from the worlds of productivity, habit building, lifestyle design, psychology, and philosophy.
It is my intention to help serious musicians make music a part of their lives in an effective and sustainable way.
The lesson options are:
One-time, one hour lesson with personalized practice plan - $100
One-time, half hour lesson with personalized practice plan - $50
Weekly one hour lesson - $80
Weekly half hour lesson - $40
Fill out the form below if you would like to schedule a session. Please include some details about your experience with music, and two to three specific things you would like help with.
I look forward to working with you!
